A Note from the 2018 Science/Research Program Chair

Welcome! For more than three decades the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference, also known as the CSUN AT Conference, has served to support the field of Assistive Technology and eAccessibility as a unique platform involving today more than 5,000 participants. It reflects, facilitates and contributes to the revolutionary developments for the inclusion of people with disabilities around the globe facilitated by the ICT and AT revolution and cross-fertilized by social, political, legal, cultural and economic changes.

We are proud of this outstanding role, which CSUN Assistive Technology Conference gained, and we are committed to fulfill its mission in contributing to a better quality of life of people with disabilities.

Looking back in history one recognizes that the roots of the CSUN AT Conference are in the scientific field. ICT for people with disabilities, AT and eAccessibility in many aspects has started in the laboratories of dedicated researchers and developers and CSUN became their meeting place from the mid 80ties onwards.

CSUN developed further and involves today all stakeholder groups as end users, practitioners, educators, administrators, AT solution providers and industry. CSUN is THE platform for ALL stakeholders in the value chain of ICT/AT/eAccessibility. The Science/Research Journal therefore invites the R&D community around the globe to be part of this unique community and stakeholder exchange. CSUN is the source for R&D ideas, for presentation, publication, exchange and discussion and to find partners for bringing R&D results into products and practice.

To meet with the interests of the scientific community, CSUN invites to submit high quality scientific papers to the CSUN Science/Research Journal subject to:

The prior volumes of the journal got more than 50,000 downloads what shows the considerable impact on the citation index of authors. So we hope you will use the CSUN Science/Research Journal for publishing your valuable work and getting involved in the unique CSUN AT Conference platform for exchange and cooperation of all stakeholder groups.
